Shaeina Laitaija Raeche Allison, 25, of Ames was cited for violation of financial liability and operation without registration after an accident 12:04 p.m. Thursday near the intersection of West Adams Street and North Sumner Avenue.

According to a Creston Police report, Allison, driving a 1992 Oldsmobile south on North Sumner, attempted to make a left turn onto West Adams and struck a stop light pole owned by the city of Creston. Allison said her tire and steering wheel locked up.

Allison was confused by first telling officers the steering wheel locked, then the tires had locked. She was also confused about if she was traveling south on North Sumner or east on West Adams. Allison said she had a history of seizures and takes medication. Officers asked if she had a seizure, and she said no. Allison said she wasn’t hurt.

Damage estimates are $5,000 to Allison’s vehicle and $500 to the light pole.
